Heaters for 1 gallon tank

I know I'm pretty bad for having royal in a 1 gallon tank but that's all I have for now
Well anyways today was the first day of winter that I had to leave him all day so I thought I'll turn the heater on so he doesn't get cold we'll I came home 8 hours later the temp is all the way up to 90 degrees so that freaked me out
Right now I'm using the 10w aqueon mini heater
So do y'all having suggestions I know its hard to keep a small tank like that heated
Can I use a 25 watt heater in it?

a 25 watt is too much for a 1 gallon tank from what I understand. a preheated 10 watt or less would work fine or an adjustable heater so you can choose the temperature.

I think you may be able to make a 25watt work if its adjustable, but it will always be hard to keep a stable temp in such a small tank.

I have one, can't quite remember the name, but its totally submersible and for .5 - 1.5 gallon tanks. Did an awesome job when rescuing this summer!

Ugh that poopy aqueon heater. Don't worry that one over'heated my 2.5 gallon too. It's not that reliable. If you don't mind a non-adjustable run down to Petsmart and pick up the Marina 10c 10 watt heater. Works great for anything up to 2.5 gallons so even if you upgrade you will be set. It is about the same size as the aqueon but it has a little red light that indicates if it's on. And unlike the aqueon it turns off the heat when the water reaches 78 degrees. It's relatively cheap too!
